Well, in the real world also we are about to see a benefit in robotics and we hope that it leads to a better fate.

The robocop is 5 feet tall and have 100 kg weight.
He is able to recognize hand gestures from a distance of about 1.5 meters.
The robocop has its special facial recognition software with the help of which it can recognize criminals.
He can also broadcast live video feeds to the police command room with this useful tool.
This is not the end, the robocop can speak 6 languages to communicate with the people and also offer a military salute.
By 2030, Dubai hopes to have a human-free police station.
Dubai government aim was that 25% of the police force to be robotic by 2030 but they would not replace humans.
General Director of the Smart Services Department at Dubai Police, Brigadier Khalid Nasser Al Razouqi said:
“With an aim to help people on the streets or in the malls, the robocop is the latest smart addition to the Dubai force and has been designed to assist our battle with crime, keep the Dubai safe and enhance its happiness levels.”
Last year, China also revealed a similar robot known as “AnBot” but it had few limitations like it was not able to chase criminals or climb stairs.
Well, we can’t wait to see this real life ‘Robocop’ in India. Are you excited?
